Autounattend.xml for installing applications post-os install

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have to install Windows 2008 R2 using DVD. I can use a USB stick to place Autounattend.xml. I need to install some applications (needs Admin access) post-os install. What are the options do I have?

I found one option that is working quite well.

- Create a password for Administrator

- Use it to Autologon.

- Execute applications as first logon on.

My question is, if possible, I would like to install these applications without having to create Administrator password. Is there any option? I read about SetupComplete.cmd, but looks I cannot use it as I am installing using DVD that I got from Microsoft.

Thanks in advance.

Setupcomplete you can specify the location of the programs you are going to run. So you could do something like attach a USB Hard Drive that has your programs on it, or use a network share.

Thanks.

How do I get the post install commands into setupcomplete.cmd? If I create a setupcomplete.cmd on USB drive and put all these commands into it, how do I get the file to %windir%? Is it possible to copy this file from USB to %windir% directory in some other phase?

Thanks again.

To find paths, you can use things similar to this:

I don't use the particular method you are for doing app installs (I don't use DVDs) but you can set up Distribution Share which can copy files from one place to the OS drive.

I just mount my particular install.wim and drop all the installation files in same folder as setupcomplete.cmd.
